CELINE introduces a selection of must-have handbags suitable for every style and mood

By The Time Place Magazine


For 2024, the iconic fashion house takes a bold leap into the realm of contemporary style, offering a range of handbags that redefine sophistication with an edgy twist as seen from its 2024 “Tomboy” collection. From the sleek and versatile Victoire Bag to the retro-inspired Tilly Bag, each piece in this collection is a testament to Celine‘s commitment to innovation and timeless elegance.


Medium Tilly in Shiny Calfskin in Pale Blue


Our first handbag pick from Celine’s Tomboy collection is undoubtedly the Tilly bag. Named after Celine’s muse and model Tilly Main, who epitomises the indie look revival, this bag channels the iconic IT bags of the 90s and early 2000s, echoing the sentiment of Y2K fashion found within the collection. Boasting an adjustable strap for versatility, the Medium Tilly bag is luxuriously lined with lambskin and features exquisite gold finishing, along with a convenient zipped closure securing its spacious compartment and inner pocket.

Available in four captivating colourways—black, white, Triomphe Canvas, and leopard canvas—the Tilly bag offers a style to suit almost every preference. Whether you’re drawn to classic elegance or bold statement pieces, there’s a Tilly bag to elevate any ensemble with effortless sophistication.


Medium Victoire in Triomphe Canvas with Leopard Print


Introduced in October 2023, the Victoire Bag made its debut as a standout piece within the renowned CELINE “Tomboy” collection. Designed to exude versatility and sophistication, this accessory serves as the epitome of modern elegance, seamlessly adapting to any occasion with effortless grace. Whether it’s a casual outing with friends, a professional meeting, or an evening soirée, the Victoire Bag effortlessly complements every facet of the contemporary woman’s lifestyle.
With the iconic Triomphe logo adorning its leather tab, the Victoire proudly showcases its lineage to the esteemed Maison. Its modernity lies in the juxtaposition of a structured design with the Celine’s signature supple leather, delicately grained for added texture and sophistication.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Victoire bag features a sewn-back construction that reveals an inverted T on the side, providing a larger base to optimise storage capacity. Its interior boasts two spacious compartments, including one zippered pocket and one patched pocket, ensuring practicality without compromising on style. Meanwhile, the sliding chain strap offers versatile wearability, allowing the Victoire to be effortlessly styled as a crossbody, hip bag, shoulder bag, or even as a chic clutch for evening occasions.

Available in various sizes—from medium to “teen”—and crafted from a selection of premium materials, including supple black leather, Triomphe canvas, shearling, leopard print, suede, and crocodile, among others, the Victoire embodies the essence of CELINE’s Summer 2024 offering.


Triomphe Bag in Rose


The iconic Celine Triomphe continues to evolve with updated colourways and fabrics introduced each season. Inspired by the ornate chain surrounding the majestic Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the double links within the design form the elegant shape of two Cs, swiftly becoming a symbol synonymous with the House of Celine. Originally embraced by the founder, this motif found its place on an array of the brand’s creations, from bags and jewellery to prints and shoes. Under the creative direction of Hedi Slimane, this iconic emblem was reimagined, adorning what we now recognise as the Triomphe bag, adding a touch of timeless sophistication to a classic silhouette.

Iconic hardware of the Celine Triomphe Bag

Crafted from smooth, lustrous calfskin leather, the mainline Triomphe exudes luxury with its refined sheen and supple texture. Despite its delicate appearance, the combination of premium leather and the distinctive Triomphe hardware ensures durability, making it a timeless investment piece. Available in three sizes—large, medium, and teen—the Triomphe bag boasts a thoughtfully designed interior lined with sumptuous lambskin. With separate compartments for optimal organisation, including both a slit pocket and a zippered pocket, it seamlessly combines style and functionality. The adjustable strap offers versatility, allowing for effortless wear either over the shoulder or across the body. Plus, with updated colourways like rose, soft blue, and light stone now available in Indonesia, there’s a Triomphe bag to complement every style and occasion.
